Tank

I have a 80gal been running salt for about 7 yrs. I recently changed it I've to a reef. Is this like starting fresh? I think I maybe rushing things I've had lost a nice V. Tang and a couple Angels. They start out fine then die. The tang I never found is it possible a xxxlg mushroom (15inches) could eat a larger fish?

They aren't exactly perfect candidates for a reef tank but I'm pretty sure it couldnt eat an angel.

They eat small fish like chromis. As long as you don't see it eating your cuc or a fish i don't think it will be a problem.
